A recent vigil commemorating the lives lost in the Orlando, Florida massacre saw Black Lives Matter activists storming the stage to spread hateful words. Coincidentally the same college where the University President was terminated after civil rights activists ran him out of town.
Students from the University of Missouri organized the vigil with student organizations on Monday, reported the College Fix. However, a young black woman took the stage to criticize everyone their for ignoring racial issues.
Activist Tiffant Melecio said,
“I was really nervous to get up here because there’s a lot of white people in the crowd. That wasn’t a joke.”
The crowd can mostly be seen in awkward silence. Most likely befuddled as to why she took this opportunity to express her own hatred and racism. She probably knew this was the perfect time to capitalize off of a tragedy.
She went on to complain the Black Lives Matter protests didn’t receive the same amount of support the vigil did.
“As much as it’s awesome that so many of you are here today, it’s like, who are you really here for?” she asked.
A few people in the crowd weren’t to pleased with her comments and decided to push back a little bit. Carl Brizendine and his husband Daniel yelled to her,
“We are here to be uniting, not dividing, which is what you are doing now.”
Brizendine told College Fix,
“Right here on this stage, they are segregating us as a community. They are making it a racial issue. It’s not a racial issue at this point.”
Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, the two gentleman were told to leave the vigil by security. Apparently for Black Lives Matter activists even a tragedy is no time to stop spreading divisive rhetoric even if it hurts people in the process.
